the Eagles’ nest
I’m thinking this might very well be the last time I get to watch over this Bald Eagles’ nest before I move south. This will be the fourth season I’ve anxiously watched for a sighting of the new eaglets. Each of the first two years they had only the one chick. Last year it looked like they successfully fledged two. Still waiting to see what they produce this year.
Lucky catch of one of the adults flying from the roost tree to the nest.
For a point of reference, the above shot is taken from across the river with my 300 mm lens. I can just barely make out the eagles in the nest without the long lens. All the previous shots in the slide show were pretty heavily cropped.
You ought not to be rude to an eagle, when you are only the size of a hobbit, and are up in his eyrie at night!
